The last Wednesday of February is known as Anti-Bullying Day in Canada. It’s also known as “Pink Shirt Day”. Originally started as a protest against a bullying incident at a Nova Scotia high school (Central Kings Rural High School). On this day participants are asked to wear pink to symbolize a stand against bullying.
The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price. They bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
In 2008, Premier Gordon Campbell proclaimed February 27 to be the provincial anti-bullying day. The boys and girls club work on pink T-shirts that saids “Bullying Stops Here.” and “Pink Shirt Day” for Anti-Bullying Day.
Thanks to all who participate and support this constructive message.
